The government has allocated Ksh 200 million towards the construction of a bridge connecting Naivasha and the agriculture rich Kinangop.

This comes even as the current bridge connecting the two constituencies was declared unsafe after a section of it collapsed.

Motorists using the busy Naivasha-Kirima road were put on high alert as officers from Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA) moved in to assess the colonial bridge.

Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua and officers from the roads authority visited the bridge and agreed to repair the damaged section.

Addressing the press, Kinuthia termed the road as important to the economy of the county and wondered why the bridge had been neglected for such a long time.

The Governor welcomed the move to construct another bridge noting that the current one posed a major threat to motorists using the road.

“The government has allocated Ksh 200m in the financial year 2016-2017 towards constructing a new bridge over River Karati,” he said.
